300 Watson Street, Saint John

This historic 3-story family home has been tastefully renovated to reflect its original beauty. Built in 1860 and lovingly maintained, this grand 6 bedroom is directly across from Queen’s Square park on a corner lot with beautiful ocean views. From the spacious stained-glass entranceway to the beautiful hardwood floors, high ceilings, crown moldings and trim throughout, this home is spectacular. The formal living room, second living room and formal dining room are huge, with many large windows and gorgeous built-ins. Perfect for entertaining, the eat-in kitchen is a show-stopper – large and bright – featuring 4 skylights, a large island, propane fireplace, tons of cabinet space and a comfortable seating area. Double doors lead to the backyard oasis – a large deck and a nicely treed, fenced and private yard. Also on the main level, a laundry room, full bath, mudroom leading to the large 2-car garage. The finished loft above the garage is perfect for in-family living/small business/studio, with a separate entrance. There are 3 bedrooms and a full bath on the second floor and a ¾ bath and 2 more bedrooms on the third floor plus a space perfect for an office/studio. The basement is a dry storage space, great for a workshop. Heated with natural gas/hot water, this home is a beautiful mix of modern living and historic elegance – a rare find on the west side.
